Ken Smith sez: This film for college kids tells them that "a good appearance is a must." Its high point (at least in entertainment value) is in its opening three minutes, where a college gal demonstrates the powerful effect she has on a college guy when she adopts good grooming habits and becomes one of "the beauties of nature." The rest of the film is typical of the genre -- grooming tips, XCU animation of hair roots and oil glands, and a narrator offering such wisdom as "most everyone sweats" and "many men ignore their cuticles."<BR><BR>

Was there a grooming crisis on America's college campuses in the late forties? This was a generation that had grown up during World War II. Dad was in the service and mom worked in a munitions factory. Nobody was around check if the kids had brushed their teeth or not. In any case, I guess films like this worked. These students grew up to be the tidy, conformist parents of the fifties. But those old unhygienic habits came back to haunt them in their counter-culture children, who used sloppy grooming as a sign of political protest.

Also, the announcer actually had to point out to me what was "wrong" with the girl in the first scene; she looked FINE to me!
It's a great video that showcases some bygone attitudes and ideas.
